Three-time Grammy Award recipient and 11-time Grammy nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of
Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, he has released twenty
albums – a number of them were as Steve Earle and the Dukes, one was Colvin and Earle, another was
Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band, etc. Earle’s songs have been recorded by such music legends as
Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill and Joan Baez. He has created such
country successes as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry
From You” and “Nowhere Road.” During his four-decade career, Earle has also become a novelist, a film,
TV and stage actor, a playwright, a short story author, a record producer and a radio host. He is a longtime
activist whose causes have included the abolition of the death penalty and the removal of the confederate
flag. Always musically adventurous, Steve Earle has crafted folk, blues, rock, country, rockabilly and
bluegrass recordings. His diverse collaborators on disc have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda
Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow and Shawn Colvin. His
new Warner Bros. Records album, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, explores his country songwriting roots and
includes collaborations with Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush and Miranda Lambert.

The Mastersons will open. Doors open at 7:00 pm, and The Smith will be offering wine and beer in its Downstairs Cabaret for this show.
